I really enjoy preparing Pulao's. It is considered as a special dish but its preparation is much easier than any other dish. When I want to eat proper vegetarian food, all I look for is vegetable pulao.It is the best food for children because they get to eat varieties of vegetables which otherwise they may not prefer to eat.
